A postgraduate degree from Bath Spa University is an asset in the pursuit of competitive employment or further academic study.
Bath Spa University describes itself as a creative community of educators, makers, entrepreneurs, thinkers, innovators and leaders. Its origins date back to 1852 when the Bath School of Art was opened. Since then, it has continued to develop and was recently ranked in 95th position in the Complete University Guide’s league tables, which rank UK universities.
The uni is spread across multiple sites which include both historic and modern elements. The Locksbrook Campus is the newest site and is centrally located in the city, alongside the River Avon. You’ll find a modern open-plan building with studio and social spaces sitting among food and drink establishments and a gallery. Newton Park Campus, on the other hand, is a parkland estate that has all the classic uni facilities on it, as well as a castle and a lake.
As a student at Bath Spa, you’ll be able to access the Students’ Union, which has over 70 clubs and societies to join, as well as the Student Wellbeing service, which provides professional, short-term counselling to those who want it.
The city of Bath itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, due to its outstanding universal value, including its Roman ruins and baths. It’s a buzzing and friendly city that’s easy to explore and has plenty to offer. Known for its great pub scene, there are plenty of places to get a drink and student club nights are common.
As well as its Roman history, Bath has loads to offer culturally. Annual events in the city include Bath in Fashion, the Bath Festival (celebrating music and literature), the Bath Film Festival and the famous Christmas markets.
The train station is a short walk from the city centre and gives access to the rest of the country, while Bristol International Airport is merely 15 miles from town and offers routes to Europe and further afield.
